A new perspective on WARWICK.

Warwick Castle, England's best-preserved medieval castle, dominates this picturesque aerial view of the county town of Warwick.

Lord Torrington, a man not known to give praise lightly, described the ancient castle as 'the most perfect piece of castellated antiquity in the kingdom' and even pictured from above, the tall towers linking the rampart walls present a majestic sight.

The long building line facing the River Avon and tree-laden landscape in the left-hand corner of the photograph houses the castle Chapel, Great Hall and State Rooms.

Just below the 147ft high Caesar's Tower at the end of the State Rooms block, Mill Street winds its way from the river bank away from the castle site.

Other landmarks are the The Mound (left centre), dating back to to the time of William the Conqueror, facing the castle courtyard and The Gatehouse & Barbican beyond that provides the entrance to what is one of England's main tourist attractions.

From The Gatehouse, the castle walls link with 128ft high Guy's Tower, which offers a magnificent view of the centre of Warwick.
